New scheme aims to highlight top UK courses and universities

Creative media training body Skillset has launched a new programme to highlight the top game education courses in the UK.

Game universities and courses that have passed Skillset’s “rigorous accreditation process” will be awarded the Skillset Tick – a shorthand award to inform students and developers of the best UK courses.

Skillset’s network of 24 media academies are the first to be awarded the Tick, as have some thirty courses in the UK covering the disciplines of animation, computer games, screenwriting and film production.

The announcement comes as Skillset chair Ian Livingstone outlined a blueprint for transforming the game education sector in the UK.
